Monument Mountain defeats rival Pittsfield easily at the track

GREAT BARRINGTON – Spartans’ Coach Mickey McCartney has had a long standing bet with his players that if his squad wins a Western Mass/Central Mass team title, he will shave off his 20-plus-year-old beard.

This year, Monument may have a shot.

After soundly defeating rival Pittsfield last Friday, 107-34, just a year after falling to the Generals, the Spartans, who are led by Connor Storti and Mike Kotleski, will now turn their focus on qualifying times for both the Western Mass. meet and the Division 2 Mohawk Meet.

“We thought we had a little bit of an advantage,” McCartney said after the win. “We didn’t know it was as much because two of our top kids were missing in Jesse Dupont and Weyessa McAlister.”

Once again, Spartan Connor Storti took four events; in the 100m, Storti beat his own rival, Korey Leonard, with a time of 11.3, and he won the 200m with a time of 23.5 over teammate Kotleski.

“[Storti] and [Kotleski] are the hardest workers on the team and it shows, it will be interesting to see what [Storti] does at Western Mass.,” McCartney said.

Storti won the long jump with a 19’6” jump and the triple jump at 40’5″, easily beating both second place finishers.

McCartney pointed to Monument’s 4×400 relay, where Chris Peretti, Smit Mahida, Jesse Arevalo and Nick Maseiro defeated PHS by one second with a time of 3:51.1, despite Maseiro dropping the baton.

“They wanted to win it,” McCartney said, after the Spartans dropped the 4×400 relay to Pittsfield at the county meet in Cheshire last week.

Other notables scorers were Tom Randolph coming back from being way behind to beat Ty Discoe in the 110 hurdles, while Maseiro won the 400m with a time of 53.3 and Jason Laramee won the high jump with a jump of 6’ even.

McCartney looked back at the records and noticed that PHS won the rivalry meet in both the team’s freshman and junior years before being crushed by the Spartans this year.

“We don’t have many good teams, so it’s good to have a rivalry,” McCartney said.

On the girl’s side of the meet, Pittsfield outlasted the Spartans to win 79-62, with the event coming down to the high jump, where the Generals’ Megan Kittler won with a jump of 4’8”.

The Spartans had closed the gap to within one point with a sweep in the javelin as Iolani DeRis threw a personal best 118’6”, just eight feet from the boys’ best throw of the day.

Other Monument notables include Heather Hassett, who is running better than she has in two years and finished first in the 1,600m with a time of 5:41.1.

“I am really happy with my times right now, and I am just trying to go as far as I can,” Hassett said.

Victoria Costello won the triple jump for the Spartans with a jump of 31-10, while Pittsfield’s Amanda Wright won the 100m with a time of 13.2. Pittsfield’s Jillian King also contributed by winning the 400m with a time of 1:06.
